I’ve been traveling since I was old enough to pack a suitcase. By age 30 I had visited almost every continent and felt a strong affinity to Europe, especially Italy. In 2012 I was commissioned by a fine art gallery to travel to Europe and capture iconic images. It turned out that my top sellers were images from Venice and Tuscany! Over the years I returned to those fertile landscapes and discovered many truly amazing locations.

My Italy Photographic Tour is your opportunity to join me and learn from my experiences of places, times, and techniques. I call it a Photo Trek seen through the eyes of a fine art photographer – an Italian Safari if you will. Unique to this tour is the inclusion of two days in Venice, which I consider an indispensable location for fine art photography.

Our group will stay in top-notch accommodations located very close to our areas of interest.  Our Villa in Tuscany is perched on beautiful rolling hills with panoramic views.  Each day I will escort our group to locations at the best times to ensure the best shots are captured.

  • All airport transfers
  • Double-occupancy lodging (single accommodations — add $1,000)
